I.M. Pei & Associates, Master Plan for Genesee Crossroads, Rochester, NY. 1960.
This design is interesting the sense that the Miesian building in the center straddles the Genesee River. Several elements of this proposal were lifted from another project by Pei, Kip’s Bay Plaza in NYC. This proposal was ultimately rejected, although future proposals for the site drew upon Pei’s ideas.

“Driving Park Avenue bridge and falls on Genesee River.”
This bridge was designed by Leffert L. Buck, who also designed the Williamsburg Bridge. The original Driving Park Avenue bridge was completed in 1890 and demolished in 1985 to make way for a new, albeit similar, one.
The large building on the left is the Eastman Kodak Hawkeye Plant.
